Canning Beets and Carrots

The pressure I use is determined by altitude. I am at sea level. Before you ever pressure can low acid food in a pressure canner be sure to check a USDA approved recipe for the proper pressure and time for your altitude.

I picked some small beets from my garden today and canned them. I have never canned beets before and am excited at how they came out. I hope this motivates others to try something new.

Always follow USDA approved recipes when home canning.

Canning beets step 1

Here is the recipe on how I can the beets.

Basic Pickled Beets

7 Lb. Beets with their rootlets and 2 inches of tops

2 cinnamon sticks, broken

1 tablesoon allspice berries

1 tablespoon whole cloves

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons pickling salt

4 cups cidar vinegar

2 cups water

1. Scrub the beets. Put them into a large pot, and cover them with boiling water. Return the water to a boil, and boil the beets 15 to 35 minutes, depending on their size, until they are just tender.

2. Drain the beets, and cover them with cold water. When they are cool, trim them, and slip their off their skins. If they are large, halve or quarter them-or, if you like, slice all the beets into 1/4" thick rounds.

3. Tie the spices in a spice bag or scrap cheesecloth. Combine the sugars, salt, vinegar, and water in a nonreactive pot, and add the spice bag. bring the contents to a boil, sturring to dissolve the sugar. Reduse the hear, and simmer the liquid, uncovered for 10 minutes.

4. While the liquid simmers, pack the beets into pint or quard mason jars. If you've sliced the beets, pack the slices loosely. Pour the hot liquid over the beets, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Close the jars with hot two-piece caps. Process the jars for 30 minutes in a boiling-water bath.

6. Store the cooled jars in a cool, dry, dark place for at least 3 weeks before eating the beets.

This video tells the story of one man's radical quest to turn a bucket of spaghetti squash into something worthy of eating. It is not meant to document the correct procedures to use while pressure canning, but rather inspire viewers to undertake their own journey of self-preservation. The story is accompanied by the music of Nathan Nokes recording AN AMERICAN FOLK TALE - II, that was downloaded from www.soundcloud.com.

Canning Butternut Squash

These squash aren't called ButterNUT for nothing. Tough to peel but so delicious. I am canning more bounty from this year's garden for enjoyment this winter.

Canning Yellow Squash

Nothing says summer to me like delicious, tender yellow squash. Watch as I can some to squirrel away for the winter.


Wash jars, lids and rings. Put jars on a cookie sheet into a 250 degree oven to stay warm. Put lid and ring in a pot to heat. Do not boil lids. Wash and slice squash. They can be cubed, but I find they fit in the jars better if sliced. Put squash in a large pan and heat just until boiling. Remove a few jars from the oven and fill to within 1" of the top of the jar. Do not pack squash, but you can shake the jar a bit to help them settle. Add on teaspoon of canning salt to each quart jar, if desired. Fill jars to top of squash with the boiling water the squash was cooked in. Wipe the rim of the jar with a clean paper towel. Place hot lid and ring on each jar and screw down firmly. Place jar in pressure canner. Place lid on canner. When steam begins to vent, in a steady flow, set timer for 10 minutes, to all all air to be vented from the canner. Place weight on caller. Allow pressure to come to 11 pounds. Process for 40 minutes. Turn off heat and allow gauge to return to -0- naturally. Do not try to rush the process. Remove the weight, and carefully remove the canner lid, lifting away from your face. Exercise extreme caution. Steam can cause serious burns. Remove jars with a jar lifter, to a towel lined counter. Allow to cool undisturbed for 24 hours. Remove rings, wash jars, label and store in a cool, dark place.

Refrigerator Pickles with Okra and More

In this video I show you, primarily, how to do a beginning canning recipe using just the basic canning materials (lids, jars, plates). I also let you see how quickly fresh food loses its vitality by comparing the same veggies- one group picked yesterday, one group picked within the hour. And I talk about one of my mentors and why I feel it is beneficial to hae relationships with people who are older and wise than us.
